Name: Darcy Bristol
Position: National Customer Development Team Lead
Years with Nestlé: Over 12 years
I’ve been with the company for more than 12 years now, and I have to say I feel like I’ve had two distinct careers at Nestlé. I spent nine years working with Nestlé Professional, where I held a number of roles, like Communications Champion, Director of Sales Operations, and Head of Marketing and Sales, and now I’m working for Nestlé Canada as the National Customer Development Team Lead.
I was initially attracted to working at Nestlé because it’s the largest food and beverage company in the world and I was familiar with many of our great brands. There was also the appeal of working with so many people who have international experience, as many people at Nestlé have professional experience in other markets.
There are many reasons why I continue to work for Nestlé. First, there’s a great group of people working here and it’s a pleasure to work with this team every day. Second, there are always new challenges to take on, which help you grow and develop in your career. I’ve found that Nestlé is very willing to make an investment in its people, in terms of personal and professional development. The opportunities to learn and grow seem endless, and I’ve had many excellent training and development experiences so far throughout my career here.
